just catching up on this wonderful thread. It took me a while to find out I didn’t have to start at page 1 each time I came back  to it but could specify a start page number - I’m a bear of very little brain!

 

Just getting to the bits where you’re contemplating a W&U influenced layout - can’t wait to see how that goes as the W&U is a real love of mine. Only ever made two layouts in 30 years (makes me look lazy compared to you !), the first one being Outwell Village Depot, the other my current layout. 
 

Was lucky enough to visit Outwell Village in February 1997 just before they built the new houses on the Depot site. Even 30 odd years after closure it still had a ‘secret’, forgotten, ‘lost in time’ sense to it. Wonderful stuff.

 

Back to page - 330 I think I’ve got to !!

 

Keep up the amazing work, and love the thread for the sense of mutual support and help, as much as the amazing modelling.

 

regards

If the waterway is to be navigable, you will need to cut the branch back, otherwise it's a hazard.

 

 

 

 

Think of it as an aggravated puddle.

I recall getting shouted at because of my trains interfering with the TV downstairs, so much for Triang's suppressors. 

When we lived in a semi in North London, my layout was in the spare room next to the party wall. Our neighbours often complained about TV interference from my trains. One night they did so and my Dad took great delight in telling them that I wasn't running the trains because I was at Scouts.

 

No more complaints after that...

Morning Rob and everyone.

 

Could I ask for some advice please - how do you remove the body of a Hornby Peckett B2 ? I can see two screws fore and aft that seem to be body retention screws not keeper plate screws, but removing the two still doesn’t seem to free the body ? Am I missing something ?

 

Any help gratefully received - sorry for the digression Rob - you and yours readership seem knowledgeable  in such matters ( I hope !)

many thanks. 

 

 

It can be quite the wiggle to remove the body but they do come off.

Evening all. 

 

The additional ground throws arrived yesterday.  

They are exactly what was needed. I can finish this side of things off now and make some progress. 

 

Rob. 

Excellent news...
